The Aude at Axat

Fierce mountain waters travel across most of the picture in grays and greens. From the pale immediate foreground two tree forms arise left and right to frame a white river-wave low centre, and then cross in front of the green woods on the opposite shore. A feeling of hoary texture on the orange foreground tree-forms, through which we must view the sliding river, is conveyed by varied brush work and paint thicknesses.
